Re: Introducing BbTalkin - Waterproof Communication Device

No answer... I think the free shipping is basically a scam. They charge everyone in Europe 20% regardless of what the actual tax is. When I asked them to invoice me without the VAT Tax (as canaries are outside the EU) they all of a sudden needed me to pay for the shipping. Very suspect communicatio...

The guy took some risks and paid the ultimate price. Sh#t happens! Here's how life works in general - you have to take risks...
